PROs: a well presented account of a complex and longitudinal tragedy. the narrator was extremely skilled at distinguishing between the characters.

CONs: quite hard to listen to, almost stopped listening on several occasions just because of how uncomfortable the story made me feel.

It wasn't what i expected but i ended up enjoying most of it. it was a little all over the place and it took a while to understand the lay out of the chapters as you keep switching between different periods in her life. overall, an interesting listen.

Stunning, Beautiful, Moving. Highly Recommend.

I had no idea quite how "foremost" this Dr was before I started listening... but as the story progressed I became more and more invested and fascinated by this man's life and experiences. 9/11, Diana's death, Stephen Lawrence. It's hard to believe that one man could be at the front line of all of these tragedies. Hats off to Dr Shepherd and Thanks for sharing your story with us.

I have returned so many books because I simply stop listening after the first 30 minutes or so. But this story had me hook, line and sinker from beginning to end. The story is a collision of tragedy and true love. The writing is descriptive and flowing. The narration is interesting and animated (I actually had to check several times whether there was more than one narrator because of the variation in the characters and inflexion) I cannot recommend this highly enough. bravo!
